FOUR men have been found guilty of murdering a 36-year-old man in a brutal vigilante-style attack.

Bill Saunders, Marvin Service, Kelvin Horlock and Trevor Lees were convicted of murder at Maidstone Crown Court on Wednesday.

They were accused of giving Mr Shaxted, of Wallis Park, Gravesend, such a severe beating in December 2007 he died from multiple injuries after almost two weeks in hospital.

It took the jury about three days of deliberation to return the verdicts.

Trevor Lees, 35, of London Road, Northfleet denied murder but previously admitted manslaughter. The three others all denied any part in the attack.

Horlock, 29, of Hatfield Road, Strood; Service, 33, of Brandon Street, Gravesend; Trevor Lees, 35, of London Road, Northfleet, and Bill Saunders, 27, of Shamrock Road, Gravesend, were each found guilty of murder.
